These are cockle-sized clams are from Viet Nam and they are a passable alternative to Venus clams. Surf clams are reasonably priced, quite meaty and very popular. They come in two versions: with both shells or with one shell removed, leaving the meat nestling in the other shell (we don’t always have both kinds). Surf clams are perfect for rice and pasta dishes. Normally they’re cooked, but you can reheat (briefly!).
